Posted April 13, 2013

I decided to take my kids to Dowling because of the ratings and reviews. After my kids attending there I have decided that it was a big mistake! Worst school EVER! We move alot because of our jobs so withing the last 2 years we have been to 4 schools and Dowling is the worst! The staff is comepletly rude to students and parents! The principle doesnt care about any input you may have! my daughter has CP and has had one on ones her whole life they wont give her that option and with that her grades have dropped dramatically! The schools is so unorganized and disfunctional! My daughters first day there she was looking around schecking out her surroundings because it is her second home bascially and the teacher screamed and yelled saying you dont look around you look forward!! My daughter had a field trip and i didnt even know until after she already went never signed a form never knew where she was going and she has CP she could have had a seizure. The teachers are just rude! i am very dis satisfied with this school and wouldnt reccomend anyone enrolling their chile there.

Just an awesome place to be with kids, teachers,staff and custodians.

Best staff in town that remains loyal to the children who live in Dowling's neighborhood.


Posted November 7, 2009

There is no other school in town that can boast about the awesome and loving staff who go the extra mile to love those students who some have labeled 'unlovable' or 'underserving' of an education. These staff members take the 'rejected' student and strive to make him/her to be the 'reflective' and successful student! I know from personal experience!!

Dowling teachers and staff care so much for the children they teach. The children feel like it is their second home. The school revolves around their needs. All teachers are involved in a group to help meet their needs. The parents I have are very supportive and deserving to have the best education possible for their child.

I have had the pleasure of teaching at Dowling for the past three years. The administration is extremely supportive of both the staff and students. The students truly care about their academic and personal progress. Our 6th graders leave the school knowing they were apart of a special family!

I love the leadership of the adminsitration and the students we have. It is a great challenge with many intrinsic rewards. Our atmosphere is a positive one. Everyone strives to be 'masterpieces' Adults and children. From our kitchen to our maintenance workers.....all a team. Don't forget those people who run the show in the office. They keep our emotions steady....Dowling is a fabulous place to work and be.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
